The art of constructive confrontation : how to achieve more accountability with less conflict by John Hoover( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Art of Constructive Confrontation, authors John Hoover and Roger DiSilvestro present their straightforward, common sense system in three easy steps. First, any project undertaken must be treated like a promise, or covenant, between each team member and his or her team leaders. This covenant includes well-articulated and precise expectations so that each person knows what to do and when to do it. Second, planned follow-up meetings - or confrontations - must be scheduled and consistently conducted to ensure that everyone makes progress as expected and gets past surprise roadblocks. Finally, satisfactory completion of all goals must be celebrated and rewarded as a foundation for the next task or project."--Jacket

Bullwinkle on business : motivational secrets of a chief executive moose by John Hoover( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At last, a fresh, new voice speaks out for organizational excellence in the free enterprise system. Who is this great leader who possesses the stature, the stamina, and the swagger to be called the consummate CEO? Step up, Bullwinkle J. Moose. And step up anyone seeking to reenergize a business or organization, big or small. In ten unforgettable episodes followed by easy to complete exercises, Bullwinkle reveals insightful, useful, and effective motivational secrets of a chief executive moose that can immediately be applied to real-life situations. Bullwinkle and his better angel, Rocket J. "Rocky" Squirrel, are Chief Executive and Chief People Officer, respectively, of the Frostbite Falls Mitten Company. But Bullwinkle soon begins to believe his own press clippings and forgets who makes the business run and who the business exists to serve. The antics of Bullwinkle's bungling and misguided management consultants, Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale, only serve to propel the maladroit moose deeper into his own entropy. But Mr. Peabody and his adroit pupil, Sherman, use the WayBac Machine to monitor lessons learned from leaders throughout history. The Beagle and his adopted boy draw concise correlations to how Rocky helps his antlered friend learn that only enthusiastic people can energize an enterprise. By teaching Bullwinkle to unleash the collective wisdom, experience, and talent of his team members, Rocky transforms a moose with marginal managerial potential into a magnificent motivator. You won't want to miss a single episode of Bullwinkle on Business."--Publisher's website
